I'm afraid you are stuck as the Realtek chipset doesn't have a dedicated ASIO driver. As tomeoftom's mention in his answer, you can use the Asio4All. This will give you the ASIO interface but not necessarily the low latency that comes from using a dedicated ASIO driver. This is because Asio4all is more a interface "wrapper" than an optimized driver - it ...

Well, that was fun! It's actually a pretty complex piece of synthesizer work--the link ObscureRobot posted in the comments sheds some light on this. Since the music isn't exactly metered, I didn't bother to attempt to quantify that in transcription (I didn't bother to typeset it either, that would've been more trouble than it's worth). So, I used spatial ...

Pretty certainly yes to 1 here, this is an area where most PC laptop manufacturers apparently don't care for quality at all – namely, to answer 2, they tend to use the cheapest microphones and preamps available (it has little to do with software), which is IMO absolutely ok because 3. you should always use external microphones if you care for quality at all, ...

Another thing you could do with the tools you have: Export the raw footage as a sound file, sync in audacity, then edit. You'll have less cuts to contend with, and everything will be in sync BEFORE you start editing. Failing that, PC editing options are slim, but I have found the Sony Vegas family to be reasonably priced (look at vegas studio vs vegas pro) ...

Have you considered just using a dedicated recorder device? It sounds like you want a recorder rather than a DAW. Something like a Zoom H4n might work well for your purposes as you can simply plug in a mic and hit the record button. No computer needed. This would also allow her to record anywhere rather than being constrained to working at the computer.

I have no idea how do you actually execute this if you're NOT using Windows: Steps: Enable Stereo Mix. Use this guide Get Audacity You're gonna have to setup up stereo mix. Don't forget to arm the track by clicking on the record button on the specific track. Hit the big record button on the top to record the sound. That's the cheapest solution for ...

Go to Devices/Device Setup then under VST Audio System on the right side of the window Tick the option underneath ASIO Driver that says release driver when app is in background... ;-p that worked for me.

SoundIt does just that. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/soundit/jpmlghikapcebilgkglhelbdipdibmgd And it lets you stream the sound output of your PC to any web browser so you can stream to any phone or even another PC.

You have the minimum down already - a laptop, a DAW, and some headphones. You don't need anything else. Other things may be useful to you, but aren't necessary. If you are classically trained, you may want notation software. But even then, a good notebook and pen will probably do just fine. Whatever software I end up with, I'd like my process to feel a ...

I hate to bring bad news but I don't think you can have a single NTFS or HFS+J/HFSX filesystem that will work stable to read and write data across both Windows and OS X computers. In 15 years of fiddling with drives and all sorts of filesystems I haven't once found a software solution that would write in a reliable way to a non-native FS, especially long ...

This will depend a bit on exactly what is in the files. They may be just audio, but they may have midi bits and pieces in there as well. In your .band file, you should have a media subfolder, and the audio tracks should be in there (as .aiff files if I recall). Any audio app should let you import them and let you save as wav, mp3 or whatever. I'd use ...

I solved this by making keyboard it self is the only output device, Synthesia will use the synthesizer in the keyboard which is a hardware thus is faster. and u will hear the sounds on the Keyboard speakers. No delay at all.

I know I'm a little late here, but I just ran into the same problem and was trying to find a solution. It turns out that I was pumping a stereo signal into a mono input and then listen to the stereo signal mixed from that, which created that 'half' sound. Be careful with the type of cable you're using to split the signal. Some of those 1/4" splitters only ...

I had the same problem with my Mbox 3 pro, and concluded that there's a conflict between drivers when you use your interface for both windows and your DAW. Install the original drivers, try disabling your sound card as the default audio device in Windows (just let the Windows sound card as your default one) and use it only with your DAW.

dBPowerAmp (http://www.dbpoweramp.com/) It's the one and only, and not very expensive either.

What is Windows actually "doing" with this full-range option? Nothing. If you set Windows to the full range option, it is not doing anything to the signal at the output. You're sending the full frequency range to the speakers. That's not to say the speakers themselves may not act on the signal though. There are crossovers in the speakers themselves to ...

Simply use either Avidemux or FFMpeg(+Avanti). Basically, do a video copy and an audio copy and specify the audio source as your studio version. This assumes that your new audio is in sync and of the same length.

I've altered a program found on internet and created WLStream. It enables you to stream audio from a Windows output device so Pulse Audio will be able to play it back on a Linux host. The communication between the two is done with plink from Putty. There's a delay in the audio stream caused by the network, I'm sure if you alter the privilege on the TCP ...

This is by design - when running a full featured DAW, the assumption is that it will be controlling all sound, otherwise the project you are working on may not end up as you expect.

It's never that easy because you have bypassed some very basic requirements in your question. For a start you need to be able to "link" the recorded vocal audio to the backing track - you need to be able to play the backing track and hear what your good lady has sung without suffering timing differences that can make it sound like a mess. At the very ...

If you intend to use the mic with your PC only (and given that you don't have a fancy audio interface with preamps), the better choice would be to use a cheap condenser mic, just like those intended for skype and those which are supplied as a part of a headset, example. The reasoning behind this is that usually the dynamic mics have a lower sensitivity and ...

I think your question is actually very misleading. Some Windows based laptops have far superior sound to Macs, and some are much worse. The thing Macs have is consistency, as Apple has control over the entire hardware, whereas there are a million different Windows laptops. So for your 3 questions: 1 - not better generally, nor worse generally, just more ...

Generally VST plugins are only used inside another program such as a sequencer (cubase for instance). As for applying them to the whole output of your pc, this isn't really something i've come across. On mac I have come across apps that would you let you add effects to your main output such as reverb and equalization but these are stand-alone apps and not ...

See if Sibelius supports ASIO drivers (look for Asio4All for an implementation that should work without a dedicated soundcard). If your keyboard also has MIDI Out, maybe a MIDI-to-USB converter cord will be better for latency - the Roland UM-ONE, which I use and works great for Ableton, is 35-50AUD on Ebay.

These things are usually due to a process with higher priority kicking the sound recording process off the CPU for long enough to drop a buffer. On Windows, I have heard this usually being the result of the wireless driver, which for some insane reason has a very high priority. You basically need to ensure your soundcard is running at the highest possible ...

Use VB Cable. I had the same issue, and could not seem to get my audio apps to record what I'm hearing in windows. This driver installs a new input/output which you can use to capture the audio playing. https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/ Works like a charm! If you want to hear what you are recording in windows through your speakers, set 'Listen to this ...
